P3D Taxi/Landing Wind Effect on AC abnormally heavy

Recommended Posts

Folks have been complaining about controllers pulling left/right.


I tested on my system with easy setting for control realism and clear weather meaning no wind. And all was well doing take-off. Staying centred on runway was as sweet as peace of cake.


But with Realism turned to 100% and Weather, in my case ASN.


With Default P3D Mooney Acclaim going 30mph down runway, I nearly had to stand on rudder pedals to stay centred.


I kind o had this feeling with FSX too, but not this bad.


Looks like P3D is not calculating well the impact of wind on controls.


30MPH and I was fighting the rudder, there was no tornado or hurricane directly perpendicular to my AC to provide such a push to one side.


Same goes for landing, soon as you land you start fighting the rudder heavily to stay centred.


Anybody else notice there may be an issue with wind effects on controls in p3d. Or is it time to turn control realism to easy for more realism.
